Partners for Progressive Israel’s Vision
As a progressive Zionist organization affiliated with the World Union of Meretz, Partners for Progressive Israel is dedicated to two equally essential goals: First, the achievement of a durable and just peace between Israel and all its neighbors, especially the Palestinian people, based on a negotiated two-state solution. Partners for Progressive Israel believes that Israel’s ongoing occupation and settlement effort undermine the country’s national interests, sully the image of Zionism, and inevitably lead to the violation of the human rights of those under occupation.
Second, and just as importantly, Partners for Progressive Israel is dedicated to the realization of human and civil rights, equality and social justice for all of Israel’s inhabitants – regardless of ethnic/religious identity, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation.
Partners for Progressive Israel’s Mission
The mission of Partners for Progressive Israel is to generate and promote partnership between Israelis and Americans who support a progressive Israel. Based on the notion of a common peoplehood, we focus in particular on partnership and collaboration between American Jews and their Israeli counterparts in order to help create a more progressive Israel and Zionist movement.
Towards this end, Partners for Progressive Israel educates American Jews, and Americans generally, regarding the issues of peace, democracy, justice, and equality in Israel and the territories it controls.
Just as importantly, Partners for Progressive Israel develops and implements hands-on programs that enable the American Jewish community, and its friends, to provide real support for policies of peace, democracy, justice, and equality in Israeli society.
